Frozen Whipped Cream Hearts

Did you know you can freeze whipped cream? (You can!)  Of course you can't thaw it, but frozen whipped cream makes a fabulous drink topper!


I've been baking quite a bit lately and have been using heavy whipping cream for my toppings and frostings.  I never know how much I need and always end up making too much. If you're the same way, there's no need to waste the extra whipped cream, just freeze it for later use.  I love real whipped cream in my coffee and the kids love it in their hot chocolate.

If you want to make shapes, spread the whipped cream about 1/2 inch thick onto wax paper and freeze for several hours.  Once frozen you can use a cookie or fondant cutter to cut out your shape.

After cutting the shape, if you're not using the frozen whipped cream immediately, be sure to place it on a fresh piece of wax paper before returning to the freezer. (Otherwise you might not be able to get it off the paper without breaking.)



You can also freeze your leftovers by the "dollop".  Once they have frozen all the way, just place the frozen dollops in a freezer safe bag and use as needed.  (I also tried this with cool whip, but it didn't freeze as well.)

Wouldn't your little one love a hot chocolate with a whipped cream heart waiting for them after school today?

Happy Valentine's day!

  1. What kind of whip cream do you use to freeze? The kind in a milk carton?

  6. I love this idea! I love putting fresh whipped cream in my hot chocolate for the extra creaminess and I love that this will also help cool it down faster.
